This is the second time my brother and I have stayed at this hotel. It's position (next to a Museum in a gated park, and close to the luxurious Hotel Negresco), is perfect. Situated directly on the promenade (The Promenade des Anglais), amongst a long stretch of hotels and cafes, the view is fantastic. Access to the old town with it's renowned flower market, is only a short walk, as is the elegant Place Massena. Nice is nice, with no signs of neglect,graffiti, or rowdyism. It is also relaxed but bustling in a Mediterranean way.
The West End Hotel is a smart 4 star establishment, and was the first hotel to be constructed on the Promenade in the 19th century. It has obvously been repainted and re-decorated inside and out. The restaurant La Siecle, is very good, and exterior tables allow a great view onto the trottoir (pavement). Service is relaxed ,but attentive and efficient. The front desk staff, and concierge are very friendly and in our experience have the place running very smoothly. The maids clean the rooms very well. Breakfast is taken in a separate conservatory style building with good interior decoration, and the food selection is typical of any 4 star hotel. One great point is that the rooms have a complimentary tea/coffee making tray which is replenished daily (though no biscuits). Toiletries in the rooms are produced by Fragonard. Minibar and safe are the usual. I speak/read French to an average standard, but English only speakers will have no problems in making themselves understood. Our experience of the West End will encourage us to return.
